specimen 001

GOJIRASAURUS QUAYI
"Quay County Godzilla Lizard"
Carpenter, 1997

Location: New Mexico, USA
Era: Norian age, upper Triassic (210 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Theropoda
Coelophysoidea

Notes:
Type specimen may be chimaera between raiusuchan material and material indistinguishable from Coelophysis bauri, putting its validity into question.

UPDATE JAN 15, 2013:
Completely redrawn. Wasn't particularly happy with the original drawing, it was done with no reference and I have perfected my technique a lot in the past year. Here's a link to the original drawing ([link]) in the Scraps.

I learned of this dinosaur from an old book I had. Great job on this guy and hopefully in the future more fossils for this dinosaur are found to confirm its genus.

Just curious: Is there any reasoning behind the numbers of all those Dinosaurs?

If it's not a chimaera, I'd doubt it would have feathers.

it's not entirely out of the question--i'm pretty open to the idea that feathery integument is a basal trait of dinosauria, perhaps even to avemetatarsalia. it's still quite possible that the fuzz on pterosaurs and the quills on ornithischian dinosaurs may be analogous to feathers on theropods, i wouldn't write it off so quickly.
